Elementary Wrap In Brume
Like morning mist nestled in a valley, our new Brume rolls in with a soft and mysterious beauty. Time to cast on for an Elementary Wrap!
This simple swath of stockinette stitch always pays homage to a favorite yarn with frank clarity. It also happens to be exactly what we want to wear day in and day out!
In mohair-wool-and-silk Brume, the Elementary Wrap is incredibly soft; it’s a little bit fluffy; it’s wonderfully warm; it’s airy and light; and most of all, it’s absolutely beautiful!
Brume comes in 25 inspiring colors, including this incredibly gorgeous Golden Lichen. In that strange world where it seems green and orange have mixed to form yellow, this color is our kind of mystery!
- 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Brume, 58% mohair, 25% wool, and 17% silk. Each skein is 273 yards/ 50 grams; approximately 961 yards required. We used the color Golden Lichen.
- US 6 (4 mm), straight or 24-inch circular needles
22 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
Finished Dimensions: 18 inches wide x 70 inches long
NOTE: We followed our original Elementary Wrap pattern but with a few tiny changes. Here is exactly what to do for this Brume version…
Cast on 97 stitches. We used a basic Long Tail Cast On.
Row 1 (wrong side): K1, p1, k1, purl to last three stitches, k1, p1, k1.
Row 2 (right side): K2, p1, knit to last three stitches, p1, k2.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures approximately 70 inches from cast-on edge, ending with a wrong-side row.
Bind-off Row (right side): Bind off in pattern.
Weave in the ends and wet block flat.
